Spring ball is here which means recruiting visitors are going to be on campus for the next month and some change to get a first, up-close look at the 2017 Michigan football team. And this weekend is one hell of a way to kick off the visit season as the staff will host a handful of their top 2018 targets.
Check out who’s expected to be visiting Michigan between March 24th and March 29th:
Ruckert is the #2 tight end in the class and a player that looks like he’d be a perfect fit in Michigan’s offense. Though Ohio State looks to be the leader in the clubhouse, this visit to Ann Arbor could be a game changer, especially with the increased need of tight ends after Devin Asiasi’s departure.
DT Tyler Friday
Friday may be the most likely weekend visitor to end up signing with Michigan. UM’s been pushing hard for the top player in New Jersey for awhile now and is in great shape to land his commitment, especially if this visit goes as well as expected. OSU and Penn State are also pushing hard for the Don Bosco standout.
OG Verdis Brown
First reported by Wolverine247’s Isaiah Hole and confirmed by Brown himself on Twitter, the big offensive guard from IMG Academy is making his way up north for his first visit to Ann Arbor. And with the staff looking to be pretty picky with their offensive line picks, he’s the type of player that they could push for as being a main offensive guard target. We’ll see if that’s enough to push UM up his list.
According to Wolverine247’s Isaiah Hole, Faustin will also be visiting Michigan this weekend ($) and he’s a name to watch. Hole also mentioned Don Brown being a big fan of Faustin. As his biggest offer by far, a push from the staff could bring good news later on.
CB Chris Smith
As mentioned in the latest Michigan recruiting update, Smith is reportedly making his way to Michigan on the 29th. He’s another SEC country standout that the staff looks to be very high on and looks to have a real shot at landing.
